[VIDEO] Our Wedding Day, a sneak peek!

For 12 months we’ve been planning our wedding. The last 30 days for me was a COMPLETE blur. Like “I didn’t know what day it was” type of blur.

FullBeauty Spring Trends IT List (Featuring Me!)

This year I told myself that I would utilize all of my talents. Back in the day, I did some modeling (that’s sounds so, “Welcome to the 40 and over club” but whatever!).

I did my first commercial & ain’t gonna lie…it was DOPE AF!

HOW DID I GET HERE? In case you missed it, I did a commercial for Burlington that aired during the Soul Train Awards (skip forward to see that video). For clarity, I want you to know that I pinch myself often and hard. On most days I’m very in awe of my journey and where it has taken me.
